    Have you used...

    advertising on MSN's major sites (ex: MSN.com, HotMail, etc...) for forms of traffic?

    URL listed below

    I just wanted to know how many visitors you received, and possibly of those how many continued to visit or even became potential customers (for those who have profit sites). Just looking for rough estimates, exact figures are not necessary.

    Hello FSN,

    Seems like you posted the URL from some other website. Usually when posting URL do not use Copy/Paste function. Instead right click on the link and select Copy Shortcut. This makes sure the link is copied and then you can paste it over here.

    Well, I'm proud to say I've never spent a penny on advertising, but with that said, I wouldn't spend money on MSN. The prices must be outrageous and the effectiveness of most ads are very limited these days. If you really want to advertise, look at Google's Adwords or Overture. Or better yet, advertise on a smaller, more niche site that might be more affordable -- such as a competitor.

    Always check it against your ROI to see whether you can afford a particularly ad rate. If your ROI is negative, then skip it. Otherwise, it's still profitable.
